On the Super Smash Bros. website, creator Masahiro Sakurai posted an update informing the world that Lucario would be returning to Smash Bros. for his second fight! Lucario is a Pokémon that made its debut in Pokémon Black and White. The character has proven to be quite popular with fans and was included in 2008’s Super Smash Bros. Brawl.
In many ways, Lucario resembles the character of Mewtwo from Melee: Lucario is a powerful fighter with a special ability. Lucario has an Aura power, meaning that the higher his damage rises, the more powerful he becomes. Although this strategy was sometimes used Brawl, the effects were not always noticeable.
This looks to change as Sakurai writes on the series’ Miiverse page: “We’ve increased the influence of Aura this time, so a damaged Lucario is truly a force to be reckoned with.” Hopefully this will help to make Lucario an even more versatile fighter than before!
What do you think about Lucario’s inclusion? What characters do you hope are announced for the new entry in the series? Be sure to tell us in the comments.
